Thank you South Florida for making the WPTV Back to School Expo a huge success!
Hundreds turned out from all over our community to gather information from local schools and health-related businesses. We were very pleased with the creative, interactive displays that our sponsors prepared.
Kids and parents alike enjoyed the sights & sounds of the mobile planetarium, courtesy of the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium.
The crowds loved seeing the sports team demos from Lynn University and the latest trends in hair, make-up and fashion from the Boca Beauty Academy.
Lucky audience members got to sample a lunchtime favorite of macaroni and cheese prepared by Howard Rosenthal with the Mr. Food Test Kitchen.
Ronnie the V.O.P., who represented the Nat King Cole Generation Hope organization, wowed everyone with his rendition of Nat King Cole's Unforgettable; followed up by several Motown favorites. Nat King Cole's daughters, Timolin and Casey joined in the fun and thanked everyone for attending.
Kids had fun hosting their own weathercast at the Storm Team 5 Weather Wall and everyone had fun taking photos with the WPTV personalities at the WPTV.com Selfie Zone.
Hosts, WPTV anchors Roxanne Stein and John Favole, thoroughly enjoyed meeting and chatting with all the attendees; as did every anchor, reporter and WPTV staff member who came to the Expo.
All of us at WPTV wish to thank the 2014 Back to School Expo sponsors, the great performers and all of the people who came out and showed support!
We'll see YOU at next year's EXPO!
